5 YouTube Channels For A Fun At-Home Workout
Like most others, I believe that exercise is important. I’m not the kind of girl who can follow a stringent diet. Salads and cereal are not my idea of a meal. I’m the kind who can NEVER compromise on food. I eat my fill, but I do believe in working it out.
Since my mother is strongly against the entire idea of anybody going to the gym, I have to make do with other forms of exercise. Be it a quick walk in the evenings (no, I’m not a morning person) or a fun solo dance session when no one’s around, I try to cram in some exercise whenever I find the time.
Yeah, I can’t go to the gym and earn myself a body of steel. But there is one thing I can do and so can you — if you don’t have the time to go to the gym everyday, try to squeeze in some exercise at home.
